Ornamental seed saving circle 2016

(1/25) > >>

Hello all, since many of us grow flowers, gourds and other ornamental things it might be fun to have a seed saving circle just for non edible things.     

I'd say we aim to swap in November to give us a chance to save extra seed this year.
Things I select for and find really hard to get from cheap seed mixes are
Single colours
Vase life
Good dried flowers
Tall, short super hardy growers.

I think there are three of us ATM so speak up if you fancy it. Grow enough seed to share and swap for other folks seed in nov?

markfield rover:
Yes please, I grow most of my flowers on the plot and I do see them as having to earn their place .

I grow named wallflowers, hellebores, nothing especially exciting  ???

Deb P:
